It's too cold out for any flowers to bloom right now, let alone Orchidaceae. But I needed to dream of lavender orchids today....

not to dream of lavender
would make today
less lavender
& more

they bloom despite
bleak winter weight
in words & image shaping
this moment as
petal-by-petal unfolding

Those orchids would look divine in the lavender silk-lined room at Lime Wood, Ms M!

Thank you for your radiant poem, Anon :)

And Shell, you're absolutely right! The orchids would be perfect at Lime Wood! :)

Stunning blooms! Bummer it's been cold there. It was a shock to return to the CA cold last night. I'm hoping I brought some warmth back from Guatemala; I'll be sure to send it your way!

Hi Katie! Welcome back! The weather has been colder than usual. I hope you brought some warmth from Guatemala, too :-) Looking forward to learning about your trip!
